San Antonio, TX Distracted Driving Accident Lawyer
Mr. Ramos brings more than 30 years of legal experience to representing individuals and families in personal injury and wrongful death cases involving:
Talking and Driving Accidents
Talking on the phone has been shown to significantly increase a driver’s likelihood of causing an accident. This is true for both handheld and hands-free calling. From cell phone records to witness testimony and forensic evidence at the scene of the crash, we will make sure we have the evidence needed to maximize your financial recovery.
Texting and Driving Accidents
Texting behind the wheel is among the most-common forms of driving distractions – and it is also among the most dangerous. While the Texas legislature recently enacted a ban on texting behind the wheel, we unfortunately know that many, many people will continue to text and drive.
Social Media Behind the Wheel
Social media use has quickly grown into a leading cause of distracted driving accidents as well. Drivers who are reading status updates are not attuned to their surroundings, and those who are typing status updates on Facebook, taking selfies for Instagram, and posting to other social media apps are dangers to themselves and all other motorists on the road.
Other Driving Distractions
In addition to phone-related distractions, there are numerous other types of driving distractions that can lead to costly accidents. If you or your loved one suffered traumatic injuries in an accident caused by a driver who was eating, drinking, reading, grooming, or otherwise distracted, our firm can help you recover just compensation for your accident-related losses.
